                              Year Purchased: 1989

                              About: SETH AND REBECCA BROCHE after their family's 100 person reunion, designed and built 3 large group places from 1989 just For Larger Group Gatherings and Events. People love them, and often comment they are the first place that's ever worked as well for their function.

                              Why Gardner Mountain:
                              We thought families, church groups, business school and club retreats needed a great place to gather together that was affordable, beautiful, big and designed for them. We had never been able to find a place like that for our family reunions. IT WORKS!
